Here's the best advice we discovered for starting a surf school:
#1: Shenglong You, founder of Thurso Surf:
We chatted with with Shenglong, founder of Thurso Surf ($100K/month). In our interview, Shenglong says:
We decided to test several products on Amazon to make sure they were viable.
We're hyper-focused on building an authentic community that resonates with our values so we're taking our time to find and vet the right kind of storytellers and create long-term relationships. It's slow going at first but we're learning a lot and dialing in our process.
It's amazing what consistent progress and working on the fundamentals can do. If you have that kind of process and routine set up in your business, then no matter what crisis or opportunity arises, like our hazardous materials incident or the challenges of a global pandemic, you'll always be starting from a familiar place.
Learn from others. When you are in a startup, oftentimes there is no knowledge resource for you to refer to, and you will always need to figure things out yourself. Don't be shy. Ask others. It can be a mentor, another startup owner, or some seasoned manager.
